Please compare/contrast Family JazZ, the ‘mazing short by friends Brendan and Mike, with Halloween Face: Episode 5, by me and Whit…
I know. CRAZILY, B + M had never seen Halloween Face when they conceived this! It wasn’t till Libby showed up to shoot that she was like, “You guys know I’ve played a teen in the future before?” I don’t know quite what it is about Libby that suggests lite-dystopia family drama, but I could see like 10 more of these.
THOUGHT: A couple years out now, I’m pretty proud of the Halloween Face project. Like a lot of TV shows it takes a couple eps to hit its stride, and the finale’s inevitably a bit of a let down - but those middle episodes are fucking solid.
